A loan of $625 helped a member to buy fertilizer, seeds, and gasoline and to pay for plowing of her farmland.


Lat's Group's story

Lat, originally from Banteay Meanchry province, is a 60-year-old mother of five children. Currently, one of her children relies on her and is still in school. To feed her family, Lat does rice farming as her main source of income. She supplements her income with a dessert-selling business. Her current business earns her 28,300 KHR per day.

This is Lat's third loan cycle with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). She has repaid her past loans completely and they enabled her to improve her lifestyle. Now, Lat is leading this two-member group to get a new loan. The total amount of her group loan is 2,400,000 KHR, of which 1,000,000 KHR is her loan portion. Lat will spend her loan portion to buy fertilizer, seeds, and gasoline and to pay for plowing of her farmland. She hopes that her business will keep earning her a good income so that she can keep her kids in school.
